Sometimes frequencies from ultrasonic systems can be too high for insects to hear whereas the subsonic devices create lower pitched sounds that are more easily heard. The subsonic system is also a plug-in electronic pest control device.
Electromagnetic pest repeller - This device uses the existing wiring in your home to repel insects and vermin. This technology changes normal frequency signals traveling through your wires into a pulsating vibration that only small vermin can detect. The signals repeat constantly so the insect or rodent is unable to build a tolerance to it and has no choice but to leave.
Since most homes and offices have wiring running throughout the walls, this device transforms your entire home into a giant pest repeller and drives the vermin out. Unlike some ultrasonic pest repeller products, electromagnetic devices can go through objects.
Determine the size of the area in your home that you want to target. If you have a large area then you might want to consider buying more than one unit. Each electronic pest control device should have an indication of this.
